Coming Home by David Lewis

(From the back of the book)
Growing up in Palmer Lake, Colorado, Jessica Lehman and Andy McCormick were inseparable. But when tragedy struck there childhood friendship was torn apart.
Now, more than a decade later, Jessie's search for the truth about her family has brought the two together again. With Andy's support, Jessie must summon the courage to face the specter that has haunted her dreams and tormented her waking hours. Yet, she fears what her quest may uncover.
Andy, however, fears something far different. AS his feelings for Jessie grow beyond friendship, how will he ever manage to protect her from-not only from her past...but from her future?

To be honest, from the first time I saw this book I was drawn to the cover. Full of unforgettable characters and lines you'll be quoting again and again, Lewis definitely hit his mark with this book. As you follow the story of Andy and Jessie, you'll find yourself not wanting the book to end, and by the time your finished you'll need the box of Kleenex. Funny, yet heartfelt, it shows the importance of faith and trusting God in the darkest of times, as well as everyday life.
Coming Home is definitely a book you'll want to read over and over, and I promise, you wont be able to stop looking up certain parts in the book when you're finished! Great job, Mr. Lewis!

Just a little note: Hi Friends! This is my first blog post, and I'm looking forward to the things we'll be reviewing. Alright, let me introduce myself. My name is Elyssa, I'm Em's best friend.
So, I hope you're enjoying the posts so far, and if you decide to read, watch, or listen to any of the things we review, we hope you enjoy them.
Love in Jesus,
Elyssa =)

A Journey by Chance by Sally John

Dr. Gina Philips is looking for peace after so many new things happened in her life. What with her new status of "Unemployed" and her recently failed relationship she has just about had it with life. So, in an act of trying to relieve her heartache she travels to her mother's hometown for her cousin, Lauren's wedding. Little does she know that this small town isn't about to let her have a moments peace. From the constant reminders of how fast news travels in a small town and the attention of Brady Olafsson, Gina is about to go crazy. But does this mysterious town hold the key to her mother's horrible past? Could it be that her first impression of the handsome, Brady wasn't correct? Will Gina find all the answers to the pending questions in her heart?

A Journey by Chance by Sally John is an excellent book that will keep you hooked from start to finish. Sally John writes with passion that will keep you in awe. I most definitely recommend this book to anyone who like to read a good romance that will keep you both laughing and crying throughout the entire story. Although this is the first book I've read from this author, I assure you it will definitely not be the last.
Way to go Sally! You hit the mark with this one.

The First of Many (Hopefully)

Okay, so this is my first time blogging. This blog will basically be my thoughts on certain things like: movies, bands, books, and other things that come to my mind over time. I won't bore you with the weird moments in my life, but I will share things that interest me. If something happens in my life that I think you would enjoy, you can trust me to come here first and tell you.
Just so you know this blog will be run by me and my best friend. We have decided to bring to the blogging world our Christian views on all the things I have mentioned above.
Bare with us as we get started because neither of us have ever done thing sort of thing before. We will do our best to give you our sincere opinions of whatever it is we review here on Daughter's of the King. I hope you enjoy what we bring.
Have a nice day in Christ.
